As of March, 2012, the hotel wwas under construction awaiting their Doubletree flagship. In spite of the disruptions, I found the staff to be quite helpful, informative about the area, and generally nice people trying to do their job well.
Rooms are so-so, but I expect when construction is complete, they will be spectacular based on the story board in the lobby. The lobby living room, is quite large, offering many places to sit and people watch. The bar has all the appropriate well drinks, beer, wine and plasma screens offering up a multitude of sports.
The hotel offers a shuttle service for the immediate downtown area which I took full advantage of. And outside the doors of the hotel is a Starbucks for those who cannot do without.
